“One of the foremost financial crime solicitors in the UK.
“He is a tenacious defender….a force of nature.’
“One of the most determined fraud solicitors in the country.
“An extremely impressive individual who wins the confidence of his clients.
Chambers UK Guide has called him “one of the most determined fraud solicitors in the country”, “a legendary defender”, “an extremely impressive individual’’ and “an exceptional and gifted lawyer of considerable experience’’. The most recent edition of Chambers describes him as “one of the foremost financial crime solicitors in the UK’’ and a “fearsome litigator’’. It ranks him as one of only two star individuals in his field in the UK.
Aziz's consistently high legal rankings and impressive reputation are due to his expertise in serious and corporate fraud, complex crime, bribery and corruption and compliance and regulatory matters.
His skill in leading and managing legal teams, both here and overseas, through all stages of a case has been proven to produce the strongest bespoke defence for clients.
His accomplished dealings with the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the National Crime Agency (NCA), the City of London Police, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and international bodies such as the FBI, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), OLAF, Interpol and police and anti-corruption agencies around the world have led to consistent success in major, high-profile fraud and business crime cases here and abroad.
Aziz's ability to analyse complex material swiftly and work tactically and tenaciously for clients has seen him be the first to take certain types of case to the highest possible UK and European courts. It has also made him the first choice for many senior business individuals who want an internal investigation conducted at their company.
From initial meetings with clients, Aziz is adept at deciding the best approach to take, the most suitable personnel for a case and the very best use of the firm’s experience and expertise to secure success. This has led to him becoming the logical choice for corporates who are looking to obtain a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) rather than face a criminal prosecution.
